I Am Enough

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others." ~ Marianne Williamson

Beautitudes For Friends and Family

"The Beatitudes for Friends and Family"

BLESSED ARE YOU who take the time to listen to difficult speech
For you help us to persevere until we are understood.
BLESSED ARE YOU who walk with us in public places and ignore the stares of strangers, for we find havens of relaxation in your companionship.
BLESSED ARE YOU who never bid us to "hurry up" and more blessed are you who do not snatch our tasks from our hands to do them for us, for often we need time-Rather than Help.
BLESSED ARE YOU who stand beside us as we enter new and untried ventures,fro the delight we feel when we surprise you outweighs all the frustrating failures.
BLESSED ARE YOU who ask for our help,for our greatest need to be needed.
